02:21 PM ET 12.31 | Greg Knapp's reunion with the Oakland Raiders was short lived, and the Raiders offensive coordinator has been fired after just one additional season with the team. Knapp did a putrid job as the offensive coordinator of the Raiders last season in leading a 4-12 team and one of the worst offenses in the NFL. He made Dennis Allen look awful in his first year as a head coach, and his scheme blocking completely messed up Darren McFadden. Knapp, in my opinion, seemed a little too stubborn as far as changing the scheme goes for his own good. It was either going to be Knapp being fired from the Oakland Raiders or star running back Darren McFadden would leave the team.

I say that we have to reach out over the racial divide and seek a common understanding.For me, chasing the white women works.

Actually, you are creating a division between the dark Blacks and the light Blacks...

But it's OK by me. Cuts both ways.
